AllMusic Review by

Cool Cuts for a Hot Summer Day rounds up 11 tracks with a summer theme from recent (mid-'90s) releases from GRP Records, including cuts from Nuyorican Soul ("I Am the Black Gold of the Sun"), Spyro Gyra ("Westwood Moon"), George Benson ("Summer Love"), Jerald Daemyon ("Summer Madness"), George Howard ("When Summer Comes") Groove Collective ("Fly"), Larry Carlton ("Mourning Dove") and Dr. John ("Blue Skies"). Not all of these songs work well together -- Dr. John's down-home R&B doesn't sit well with the smooth fusion of Spyro Gyra -- but it's an entertaining sampler.
